Re: There and back again; a Neverending Tale. Neverending Nights

Cool! I wish I could play an instrument (other than my voice, I mean). Still, I do have a fairly good microphone hooked up to my computer, so I can use it for recording (or just goofing around ... like the bit below). ;)

Are you in Arnie’s (the restaurant)?

Re: Police Quest 1 EGA Play Through.

Why does the nightstick have to stay in the car? *puzzled* I wonder if it's to make sure that you don't have it with you later on. Like when you go to the hotel and get frisked. PQ is pretty realistic with inventory. Most things are on your belt and you're not carrying around 100 pounds of stuff li...

Re: Police Quest 1 EGA Play Through.

No worries, done. :) All three bits are taken from Gilbert and Sullivan's light opera "The Mikado" (because it's in English, so it's easy to understand), and they're all about a minute or so. 1. Tenor 2. Baritone 3. Bass Your tenor and baritone sound pretty similar (as in, telling it's YOUR VOICE I...

Re: Is everyone all right? *worried*

Thank you, BBP! :) Strong earthquakes (above about 5.5) are so rare here that it confused me more than anything. I guess I was just very lucky -- I heard there was structural damage elsewhere in our city. Thank goodness no-one was killed or injured.

Re: There and back again; a Neverending Tale. Neverending Nights

Nice. :) I liked it very much! Thanks, Tawm. :)

It sounds like this was recorded on real instruments. Was it? Sorry to ask, but it's a bit hard to tell these days -- even Skyrim's music (or at least the Dragonborn theme) wasn't real people singing, I heard.

Re: Pillars of Eternity 1 - Rath Playthrough

Aha! :D Yes, I got that ... and finally, finally played through that last night. (I also did some other quests for House Dominos (sp? the rich house of thieves), reported back to Lady Webb (twice - I finally found who's behind everything! :D), and went back to the Endless Dungeon of Ad Avis Ad Nua (...

Re: Police Quest 1 EGA Play Through.

It's a bit weird that at the jail, the same black guy does nothing but dribble a basketball but never takes a shot (until those two drug dealers show up). I guess the jail can't afford a basketball hoop? :? Also - why does it gotta be a black guy dribbling and the black guy in the jail cell? To be ...

Re: Is everyone all right? *worried*

LOL! Just the words "the San Andreas fault" reminds me of how the Animaniacs treated it. Good night, everybody! :D (And, as a musical bonus, it's based on "The Happy Farmer" (op. 68, number 10) by Robert Schumann - which everybody in the Netherlands knows. Just ask BBP) ;) Thanks, NBH -- I forgot ab...

Re: Pillars of Eternity 1 - Rath Playthrough

*loads game again and checks* Oh, that guy! Yeah, I remember him ... vaguely. I did that quest (climbing the walls, talking to some priest guy, rescuing the priest guy's disciple from the dungeons, getting to Raedric and killing him) before I went to Caed Nua. ;) But I've done so many little side-qu...

Re: Police Quest 1 EGA Play Through.

Oh, one last thing. (Sorry!) Another funny-weird moment: you go to the Blue Room for Jack's birthday and talk to him. He tells you how his life is falling to pieces because he's getting divorced, his daughter's on drugs, he's becoming an alcoholic etc. and bursts into tears. Then Keith comes in. You...

NBH? How on earth did you get 249 points, when the highest score is 245? *shrug* Here's my reaction to the commentary playthrough ... (Warning, long) :lol: Yes, that scene where Sonny waves his nightstick around always confused me. It does look like he's practicing some kind of martial art ... on th...

Re: Three Clues - Who Am I?

Not a fantasy game ... so not QfG or KQ, then. OK.

Are you in a Police Quest game? (You just played PQ1 EGA!) ;)
